When Rigging the Election – Video I: Clinton Campaign and DNC Incite Violence at Trump Rallies was first released, the explosive new video from Project Veritas Action that exposes Democratic dirty tricks, and a dark money trail to the DNC and Clinton campaign, social media lit UP with calls for media to cover the newly released video which seemed to fall on deaf ears. I had to wonder why – then I SAW why! Media HAD to come up with a counter attack to discredit this extremely damaging footage. All I have heard is there is no proof the video is legit and now, they have begun calling it “bar room talk” and that it didn’t happen. I took issue with that and set out to research more proof. Details of the video along with other images and links to proof provided below, read on.
The video includes live footage of the following people:
Aaron Black (alias for Aaron Minter) “DNC Rapid Response Director for all things Trump on the ground.” He explains that basically, no one is supposed to know about him. A little research on Aaron shows then, Occupy Wall Street protester was arrested in April, 2012 because cops spotted them vandalizing subway cars in a NY1 News segment for criminal mischief, making graffiti and possession of graffiti instruments. And then there was the time… an SEIU-sponsored a bus trip from NYC to the Tampa 2012 Republican National Convention protest. Initially it was believed the trip was being paid for by the massive Occupy Wall Street donation fund, but eventually Brendan Hunt learned that Obama-supporting leftist organizations were footing the bill.
Scott Foval, who until the release of this video was National Field Director for Americans United for Change. Part of his “process” is eliciting reaction from Trump supporters at rallies. He goes on to say, “The whole point of it is that we know Trump’s people will freak the f*ck out, his security team will freak out, and his supporters will lose their sh*t.”
Scott used to work for People for the American Way, an organization funded by George Soros. He also has his own business called The Foval Group and is one of the “dark operatives” for the Clinton Campaign. Foval explains that he is contracted directly with the DNC and the campaign. Scott is contracted to Bob Creamer but answers to the head of “special events” for the DNC and the head of special events and political for the Clinton campaign.
“The Clinton campaign pays DNC, DNC pays Democracy Partners who then pays the Foval Group. The Foval Group then goes and executes the sh*t on the ground.”
Democracy Partners is a private political consulting company with deep ties to the Clinton campaign and the Obama White House and the Democratic National Convention (DNC).
Bob Creamer (more detail on this guy below), Founder of Democracy Partners. Bob explains in the video that wherever Trump and Pence are going to be, they have events. Bob explains DP has a whole team across the country that goes to Trump/Pence events. Bob’s role in the Clinton campaign is to manage and coordinate those teams. Bob is the husband of Jan Jakowski, a Democratic congresswoman from Chicago. In 2005, Bob was convicted and sentenced to 5 months in prison and 11 months house arrest for tax violations and bank fraud.
While doing all my usual fact checking, I had to wonder WHY Robert Creamer appears on the White House visitor logs 340 times beginning in 2009 when Obama took office and ending with his latest visit in June 2016. Which I should point out, June 30, 2016 was the last entry for anyone appearing on those logs, not just Creamer. In 45 of those White House visits, Creamer was scheduled to meet with POTUS himself.
So who is this BOB guy exactly? Well, let me share his bio that appears on his website:
Robert Creamer has been a political organizer and strategist for over four decades.
During that time he has worked with many of the country’s most significant issue campaigns. He was one of the major architects and organizers of the successful 2005 campaign to defeat the privatization of Social Security. He has been a consultant to the campaigns to end the war in Iraq, pass universal health care, hold Wall Street accountable, pass progressive budget priorities, and enact comprehensive immigration reform. (from Amazon Author Bio: He is a consultant to the campaigns to end the war in Iraq, pass universal health care, change Americas budget priorities and enact comprehensive immigration reform. His clients have included labor unions, public interest groups, and advocacy organizations like MoveOn.org, Americans United for Change and USAction.)
He is General Consultant to Americans United for Change where he helped coordinate the campaigns to pass President Obama’s landmark jobs and economic recovery legislation.
Creamer has provided strategic advice for a wide array of progressive causes ranging from the movement to stop gun violence, defending the Obama Administration’s Iran nuclear deal, raise the minimum wage and guarantee the right of collective bargaining.
During the 2008 and 2012 Presidential Elections he worked with the Democratic National Committee as a consultant to the Obama Presidential Campaign coordinating field based rapid response to Republican Presidential candidates.
During his career, Creamer has worked on hundreds of electoral campaigns at the local, state and national level.
Creamer began his organizing career in 1970 working with Chicago’s Citizen Action Program (CAP), which had been organized by Saul Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation. CAP successfully campaigned to reduce the sulfur dioxide in Chicago’s air by almost two thirds.
In 1974 he founded the Illinois Public Action Council – later known as Illinois Citizen Action – which became the state’s largest consumer advocacy organization and progressive political coalition. He directed the organization for 23 years.
Creamer has been a full time political consultant since 1997 when he co-founded the Strategic Consulting Group, now a component part of Democracy Partners.
He graduated from Duke University and did graduate work at the University of Chicago.
He is a board member of the Midwest Academy organizer training institute and the Sentencing Project which is seeking to end mass incarceration and reform the nation’s sentencing laws.
Creamer is an author and regular contributor to the Huffington Post. He is married to Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky from Illinois. His recent book is titled, Stand Up Straight: How Progressives Can Win.
Back to the video…Scott Foval works for Bob Creamer directly. Scott explains that he is the white hat and Democracy Partners is the black hat.
Scott explains how each day, they have a “clip deliverable” that goes to groups of clients including the AFL-CIO which he claims are like attack dogs and are ready to move on a moment’s notice. Scott then details the methods of communication between the consultants and the DNC or campaign, since they are, by law, not allowed to communicate directly. I called this communication an “ongoing Pony Express.”
Scott Foval, Creamer’s attack dog, and his people train the “agitators” who are then assigned to Trump rallies. He explains how there is a script agitators go by and that most confrontations take place outside the rallies where security is less visible and where they will get the best coverage.
Foval turned out 500 people in front of Trump International in D.C. Remember this?
Back to Aaron, who proudly claims responsibility for the riots in Chicago on March 11th. In the video, Zulema Rodriguez, Activist, boasts of her involvement in those Chicago riots. Remember that?
Zulema goes on to boast of the “event” in Arizona, on March 19th, where they shut the highway down. Remember that?
Zulema has made quite the little career out of protesting. Check out the payments she has received as reported through the Federal Election Commission.
In the event that “some kid gets punched out at a rally, his doctor bill, legal fees and fees associated with arrest are covered” by the Clinton campaign. This is done to ensure no one talks about their assignment.
“The entire purpose is to get negative press focusing on Trump and Pence.” Scott stated, “it’s something Bob and I obsess about is we’re not going to go to an effort to just do an event and not have anybody show up or not have it covered. We have to get coverage.”
Remember Shirley Teeter? The 69-year-old woman with COPD on oxygen that was assaulted at a Trump rally in North Carolina? She was a Foval activist who had been trained to “birddog” which means you put people in the front of the line, usually arriving SEVERAL hours before an event to ensure they are front and center at the rally. Their assignment is to ask Trump scripted questions in front of reporters.
Anyway, you get the point… You can see BOTH videos linked below.
Back to my point…
Why did it take so long for media to cover this when the demands on social media were viral and intense? Because the media had to devise their plan on how they would downplay or discredit the video. As an example…Last night on CNN, Scottie Nell Hughes and Jeffrey Lord were discussing the video to which Anderson Cooper and Hillary supporters, Van Jones and Maria Cardona drew point to the Trump camp pointing out that the Trump Tape with Billy Bush was two guys talking locker-room talk, bragging, but had never acted on it. So how are we to know Foval, Creamer and Black aren’t doing the same thing.
Well, I’ll just let the evidence support itself. Everything they mentioned happens exactly as we have seen it. Hillary supporters, or their trained activists go to these rallies and incite violence. It’s something we have all noticed all along. You don’t see Trump supporters attending Hillary rallies doing the same things – these people are paid to act a certain way.
